Now in its 17th big year, Pink Floyd A Fleeting Glimpse continues to attract new audiences. The site is widely acknowledged as a great source for Floyd news and has picked up a massive cult following over the years. (We passed the 50 Million visitor mark way back in Nov 2012!) A Fleeting Glimpse (Or AFG as its become known) is used by a cross section of the Floyd/Waters online community, including new fans & crusty old fossils, who spend all their life researching Floyd. I fit into the latter category by the way, having been a Floyd fan since 1966. My name is Col Turner, and I run this site on behalf of fans all over the planet. Without your contributions the site could not exist. If you have anything Floyd related that you think may be of interest, drop us a line (col@pinkfloydz.com)  Don't forget, in the best Pink Floyd tradition, there are several hidden links on this site, can you find them?

STORY UPDATED - The Wall Live DVD For September? Well that's what we were told unofficially anyway. Still waiting on official sources but it maybe (although by no means certain) that the long awaited DVD of Roger's The Wall Tour 2010 - 2013 could surface in September. Be aware though that this info is purely a rumour and could turn out to be a load of the proverbial! UPDATE We still don't know for sure but think this might be a THEATRICAL RELEASE of some kind. We should add that details at this time are still very sketchy and should not be relied upon. AT LAST Sorry to have kept our regulars hanging on for a few days but we have managed to sort out the wheat from the chaff and can now tell you the following: There is going to be a screening of Roger Waters The Wall at the World Premiere on 6 September at the Toronto International Film Festival. Ticket Link The film (to be shown on both the 6th at the Elgin & the 7th at the Ryerson) is a documentary about The Wall Tour 2010 - 2013 and Its synopsis promises an "exhilaratingly visceral experience" of rock showmanship. It's understood that Roger will be in attendance at both screenings and there will be Q&A sessions. As to The Wall Tour DVD our best information at this stage is it won't be out until 2015 at the earliest. (If ever!) UPDATE There is to be a third screening of the movie on 14th September at the Scotiabank Theatre. It's doubtful Roger will be at this one. IMDB Link
 
Pink Floyd Engineer Andy Jackson's New Album Pink Floyd engineer Andy Jackson will release his fourth album Signal To Noise on November 3 via Esoteric Antenna. He was already an established studio veteran when he joined forces with James Guthrie to work on the movie version of The Wall. His connection continues to this day as he's co-producing upcoming Pink Floyd record The Endless River. Andy's label describe Signal To Noise as "a fine modern progressive work, drawing on his exemplary career." He says: "The album reflects on the sorting of what's important in life from the humdrum of everyday existence – and it's an analogy for the process of the creation of the album itself." Signal To Noise follows his previous releases On The Surface, Obvious and Mythical Burrowing Animals. It will appear as a standard CD plus limited-edition 2CD digipak including a 5.1 Surround mix. We will have ordering info for you when it becomes available.
 
Pink Floyd Exhibition Postponed The Pink Floyd Exhibition that was scheduled to open on September 19 in Milan has been postponed. Ticket sales are currently suspended after the organisers realised they wouldn't be able to make the start date. A revised opening date is yet to be announced. A statement on behalf of organisers said: "Evolve Devolve, the Italian promoters of the Exhibition, have announced that the exhibition, has had to be postponed due to production delays. Building the complex exhibition to the required specification has made it impossible to make the opening date." Ticket-holders can exchange them for an alternative date once these are finalised or they can seek a refund. We will of course keep you informed once the new date is announced.

Amused To Death - LP & SACD Delayed Again Here we go again! (I guess we are all getting used to delays) The ATD LP & SACD that we told you about last year, and saw it's debut at the Princeton University Pink Floyd Conference on 12 April (Read REVIEW here) has been delayed once again. We suspect that this may be due to Sony/Legacy's involvement in the project and are now not expecting to see this release until the first quarter of next year! The good news is that you can still pre-order this release from Amazon USA or Amazon Canada who are offering a pre-order price guarantee.

The Division Bell 5.1 Reviews Well judging by the many emails we have received, plus dozens of positive comments on The Forum it seems as if the majority of Pink Floyd fans have really rated this release very highly. We have gathered together three reviews, all taken from different perspectives, to give a balanced view of the album in it's 5.1 format. Regular contributor and well known audiophile Julie Skaggs breaks down the mix with a critical eye, Lars Normann gives a blow by blow description and Claude Flowers gives us a brief overview. UPDATE: We have been fortunate enough to receive another technical review from Pal (Another audiophile) which is well worth your time to read Read All The Reviews

New Album From Pink Floyd Hot on the heels of the confirmed new David Gilmour album in 2015 comes the news that a new Pink Floyd album is on it's way in October this year! We have known about this album for some time but were sworn to secrecy, now we can reveal the details. The album, named 'The Endless River' is based on the 1994 sessions of The Division Bell. Nick Mason referenced the source material (in his book ‘Inside Out,’) saying “we eventually ended up with enough left-over material that we considered releasing it as a second album,” and naming it 'The Big Spliff." But the new album is more than just a series of outtakes! David Gilmour, Nick Mason and the late Rick Wright originally performed a series of ambient instrumentals which have since been worked on by both David Gilmour & Nick Mason. Last December David brought in backing singers Sarah Brown, Durga McBroom-Hudson and Louise Clare Marshall to sing the backing vocals for a song in which David Gilmour sings lead vocals. An interesting aside is that Polly Samson is now credited as being a Lyricist on the new album. We can also confirm that THERE WILL BE NO TOUR. And for those hoping for input from Roger Waters the answer is a resounding NO! (5 July 2014) 

The OFFICIAL statement reads: Pink Floyd can confirm that they are releasing a new album, The Endless River, in October 2014. It is an album of mainly ambient and instrumental music based on the 1993/4 Division Bell sessions. The album is produced by David Gilmour with Phil Manzanera, Youth and recording engineer Andy Jackson. Work is still in progress, but more details to come at the end of the summer.

Dazed and confused.An article recently appeared on the Ultimate Classic Rock site that claimed Graham Nash and David Crosby would be appearing on The Endless River. We have had it confirmed that this is in fact incorrect, but they will be appearing on David's new album due out next year.
 
David Gilmour Album - Major Announcement We have had it OFFICIALLY confirmed that David Gilmour's new album is planned to be released in 2015. Although a lot of work has already been completed (and is still underway) the album is nowhere ready to be recorded as yet. It's also been confirmed that David has not yet decided to tour the new album next year, although we do have our fingers & toes crossed. (Filed 17 June) UPDATE Another reliable source has suggested May 2015 although that is NOT official. Further Update Despite some doubters out there we can confirm that the news of David's album sometime in 2015 is OFFICIAL and when we say OFFICIAL, we mean OFFICIAL!!!!!
 
Division Bell Heads On The Move If you were planning on visiting the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland to admire the Division Bell heads then you will be disappointed. They are on their way to Milan Italy where they will feature in the Pink Floyd Ehibition starting later this year.
 
 
David Gilmour News! We are expecting a major announcement about David's new album in the near future (Although there is a lot of unfounded speculation about at the moment, so don't believe all you read!) BUT we can absolutely confirm that David is currently working in his recording studio on his houseboat The Astoria. Floyd fans will recall that parts of each of the last two Pink Floyd studio albums, A Momentary Lapse of Reason and The Division Bell, were recorded on the boat, as were parts of David's most recent solo album, On an Island. It was also used for mixing the Pink Floyd live albums Delicate Sound of Thunder and Pulse as well as the Pulse film, Gilmour's Remember That Night DVD and his 2008 live album, Live in Gdańsk. Stick with us and we will steer you right!
